Artist of the day; Nickelback

So its a rock music weekend. Particularly, a throwback to the old days. I'm home with my sister and we recently discovered an old stash of CDs. So its reminiscing all the way. Don't tell her I said so, but my ear drums are stinging from all her Nicki Minaj listening and Glee watching........shhhhhhh!!!!
                                   
I found over 20CDs that had a Nickelback or 2 song in them. Boy, did and do I love this group. The lead singer/guitarist, Chad Kroeger's voice crawls over your skin
like a nuzzle. The rest of the band members are Ryan Peake, bassist Mike Kroeger, and drummer Daniel Adair . Nickelback was formed in Canada in 1995 and have churned out hit after hit rock song including How You Remind me, Far Away, Photograph, Hero, Rockstar, Someday and a host of others.

Click here to watch Photograph which is one of my all time favourite songs. Here are the lyrics below for those who dont know it and want to sing along (thank me later). 

 
"Photograph"

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
How did our eyes get so red?
And what the hell is on Joey's head?

And this is where I grew up
I think the present owner fixed it up
I never knew we'd ever went without
The second floor is hard for sneaking out

And this is where I went to school
Most of the time had better things to do
Criminal record says I broke in twice
I must have done it half a dozen times

I wonder if it's too late
Should I go back and try to graduate?
Life's better now than it was back then
If I was them I wouldn't let me in

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, god, I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

Remember the old arcade
Blew every dollar that we ever made
The cops hated us hangin' out
They say somebody went and burned it down

We used to listen to the radio
And sing along with every song we know
We said someday we'd find out how it feels
To sing to more than just the steering wheel

Kim's the first girl I kissed
I was so nervous that I nearly missed
She's had a couple of kids since then
I haven't seen her since god knows when

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, god, I

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

I miss that town
I miss the faces
You can't erase
You can't replace it
I miss it now
I can't believe it
So hard to stay
Too hard to leave it

If I could I relive those days
I know the one thing that would never change

Every memory of looking out the back door
I had the photo album spread out on my bedroom floor
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.
Every memory of walking out the front door
I found the photo of the friend that I was looking for
It's hard to say it, time to say it
Goodbye, goodbye.

Look at this photograph
Every time I do it makes me laugh
Every time I do it makes me...
